TRACER AMC – Pelican e.p. – Record Collector Review
Record Collector, Unknown
Join us, if you will, in the murky yet beguiling world of Tracer AMC. What the music or the band’s name means, we know not, but both sound pretty darn good. It’s an worn-out comparison, but if you’re partial to the quiet side of Mogwai, then this should be right up your street. The band claim to be part of a nu-gazing movement, but that’s doing themselves a disservice, we feel. The shuffling beats halfway through, when the song changes direction completely, make for a varied listen much more worthy than the meandering indulgence of so many other miserable indie types. Brilliant.
